She’s Back…Beyonce, That Is!

Published: Tuesday 9th Sep 2008 by Sam
She's Back...Beyonce, That Is!After almost a year hiatus, Beyonce is set to return to the music scene this October with not one, but two singles. Check out the press release released by her camp earlier today:

NEW YORK, Sept 09, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Music World Music/Columbia Records will release the third full-length studio album from the international superstar and cultural icon Beyonce on Tuesday, November 18.

One of 2008’s most hotly anticipated new album releases, Beyonce’s as-yet-untitled upcoming album marks the artist’s first new studio collection since the Grammy-winning multi-platinum-selling B’Day debuted at #1 on charts around the world shortly after its international release on September 4, 2006 (in celebration of Beyonce’s 25th birthday).

Beyonce’s fans will get their first glimpse of the artist’s new album with the simultaneous release of two of the album’s key tracks — “If I Were A Boy” and “Single Ladies” — scheduled to impact radio on October 7.
With all songs co-written and co-produced by Beyonce, the artist’s third studio album is her most personal, reflective and revelatory collection to-date.

Lensed live at Radio City Music Hall on September 5, Beyonce’s spectacular performance at the “Fashion Rocks” fifth anniversary extravaganza, a star-studded concert honoring the relationship between music and fashion, will be broadcast on CBS on Tuesday, September 9 at 9pm (ET/PT). Please check your local listings. {Source}

The timing of her ‘return’ couldn’t have come sooner; with all the so-so material we’ve been subjected to from ‘singers’ who can’t/don’t sing (I won’t say no names), it’s great to see that the ‘queen of the pack’, so to speak, is coming back. No doubt this one will be an ‘event’ in itself…one I’m highly anticipating.

Your thoughts?

    WHO GIVES A DAMN!!! I REALLY DON’T GET ALL THE HYPE ABOUT BEYONCE. HER MUSIC IS NOT ALL THAT. SAME FOR RIHANNA. PEOPLE NEED TO LOOK BEYOND LOOKS AND LISTEN. NOW CREDIT TO BEYONCE, SHE CAN SING, BUT RIHANNA CAN’T DO A THING BUT DRESS NICE. FOR THE RECORD, THE QUEEN OF THE PACK IS ALICIA KEYS (PERIOD).

    How original.

    Beyonce is amazing live there is no question of that.. but i don’t see why there is such a massive hype for her return? The singles released from B’Day didn’t do that much for me, Rihanna has had more impact to be honest. Still, am eager to hear these two new singles.

    I agree with the first comment and the one about her being good live. I like seeing her on TV shows and events but I am not looking forward to her CD. Bday was so elementary to me I could not relate to it. Hate to say it but that album reminded me of someone whose name starts with the alphabet before B. The one good thing about her releasing at this time is that we can get a variety of artists instead of having her shoved in our ears every 30min on radio. It will be interesting i must say, Beywolf, Brandy, Keri, Jennifer, Christina A, Ne-Yo, PCD, T.I, John Legend, Common, to name a few, this fall should be a good time.

    Please stop comparing to Ciara’s “Like a Boy” single, when no one even heard a note of B’s Song. Can’t understand why people are that crazy to hate. Sure, the title sounds the same in some way, but I#m sure it’ll be complete different… so, who cares, there are hundreds of songs with even the same title.

    Can’t wait for the singles and album to drop. The Queen is back… waited so long for it 🙂

    Who cares bout Rihanna’s impact!? Everybody was like Beyonce needes a break. I think Rihanna def needs a log stay away from biz. She brings out album after album, that really stresses. B really takes time in between. So. Apart from that sales are not all… Ri and Bee are in different leagues. Beyonce is a “international superstar and cultural icon”. word. …november come

    I’m lookin foward to her album but the song titles are already throwing me off. BUT After watching the BOREFESTS that is the VMA’s and BET Awards. I’m hyped about The Queen of the BET Awards and The Prince of the VMA’s rip it up at Fashion Rocks.

    Your not a true Icon/legend/Queen until other artist start covering your songs and you get a tribute of performances etc. She only got that from DC, her solo career is not what you all think, her tour wasn’t even one of the biggest last year, didn’t even make the top 10. Christina beat her out in that department of all people. No matter how hard the stans deny it due to a severe hypnosis, the girl is not all you sweat her out to be. Sorry!!!!!

    She has good marketing as always…the beauty, the bling…can we just get the album and this being the most refelctive..again marketing, cause she is trying to run her a** as far away from Bday as possible.

    I must not have been clear, i meant to say that Bday sounded like another female artists CD with whose names starts with A whose CD was out before BDay. If you listened to both artists CD’s you will clearly hear that bday was a product of elements taken from other folks.

    If thats the case with Rihanna, why are folks so scared to buy her albums with all those hits. What I'm saying is:

    Beyonce's worst: B'Day 3 Top Ten Hits= 6/7Million Sold Worldwide

    RIHANNA'S BEST: GGGB 5 Top Ten Hits Biggest Songs of 07-08= 5 Million Worldwide!

    So clearly it shows that Beyonce's worst >/=Rihannas Best! WOW!!!

  30. Philly September 9, 2008

    This is too soon. Anastacia’s last album was 5 years ago. THAT was a break. She talked about cancer and the struggle about treatment, which is far more “human” than Usher and songs about his ex. I have doubts about how “personal” this is going to set, coz for me the standard has already been set.

    If she’s going to “take a break” please do it properly.

    **********************************************

    **Yes hope that comment wasn't directed to Ashanti, because her albums do not sound anything like Beyonce, but Ashanti does release great albums. Her past, "The Declaration,' would be loved by so many R&B fans if they actually gave it the time of day and listened to it, REAL TALK!

    And Let's all not stray from the facts when it comes to Rihanna, Even if her album's don't debut at number 1, or sell tons of millions, She still manges to sell singles, in great quantity, GIVER HER NUMBER 1s. Anyway you put it thats an accomplishment. I mean I'm not the biggest Rih fan but I will stand up for THE TRUTH!

    Like I've previously said, why can't people enjoy MORE THAN 1 female R&B artist? Why Not? I'm sure Beyonce's music will be interesting, so let's wait to give it a chance first beore criticzing it. BUT I do believe it was messed up for her to release her album near Michelle's BUT then again, they are now solo artists, so technically it shouldn't matter-right?

    Beyonce will release the best 2 singles of her album as the lead singles, this will create a buzz and possile chart highly as will the album, after that no-one will give a damn til her next project, just like what happened to B’Day.

    As for Rihanna, Disturbia is the 7th single released from Good Girl Gone Bad and hit number 1 in the Billboard Charts and number 3 in the UK charts on downloads alone.

  36. Anonymous September 9, 2008

    THIS is not about Rihanna! And for Disturbia it was just the vid that fed that bad song. THIS is about Beyonce… and BDay was more than that. Deja Vu was a major first hit with the first single release. Irreplaceable got the biggest and Beautiful Liar was a huge hit as well. And the fans def will give a damn!

  37. Anonymous September 9, 2008

    I admit I would like to see Rihanna take a break, but she ain’t going nowhere anytime soon as her duet with T.I called ‘Live Your Life’ is scheduled for release – and I ain’t complaining it’s a great track.

    Beyonce’s Deja Vu was easily forgettable after the initial buzz. Irreplaceable sounds like all the same but it is a good song. Beautiful Liar was helped by another diva Shakira in which lets face it, a rather rubbish track.

    Being Rihanna’s number one fan, however, I have to admit Beyonce can kill it live, Rihanna can’t – as was proven at the VMA’s on Sunday.

    Whatever. Beyonce is played out. And, she’s not an icon. To be an icon, your music has to stand the test of time. I just don’t see myself singing “Freakum Dress” ten years from now. Beyonce has had her chance to shine, now it is time for her to step aside because white America has moved on to something else. And, that something else is Rhianna.

    Rihanna is only 20/21 years old and has had 4 number ones in the US and a record-breaking single, somehow I don’t think that is gonna be forgotten for quite some time…

    I will admit Rihanna has more memorable hits than Beyonce, but Rihanna really has nothing to bring to the table as far as a performer. She was awful at the VMA’s and she really could have brought it.

    B’day was rather forgettable except for “Get Me Bodied”, “Irreplaceable” and “Resentment”. I hope with this album she will have more memorable, mature music that will cement her status for good.

    please stop, rihanna had worldwide hits as ya’ll want to claim and yet she still managed only 1 measley grammy for some rap collaboration? she wouldn’t even gotten one had jay not been on the song. ya’ll are right, rihanna had all those number 1 singles and still hasn’t managed to be 2x plat in the u.s and has only sold 4.8mil ww. bee with her only hit off of b’day managed to sell 3.3 million in the u.s alone and 7mil world wide. rihanna is still releasing singles from the same album hoping people will remember her name with it. laughing my ass off at someone saying rihanna has an impact? impact in what? please, NOBODY talks about her nasal voice, her lack of performance skills and hell, nobody cares about her. after 3 albums and a gazillion number 1’s (ya’ll keep saying that), she was still AN OPENING ACT on someone else’s tour. how pathetic? beyonce sold out places all over the country including 70,000 who came out to see her in the phillipines. btw, nobody is talking about rihanna at fashion rocks, but beyonce still is making headlines even in singapore with her performance. rihanna stans needs to go sit somewhere and realize that the queen is coming back and your girl is about to be embarrased. personally, i know ya’ll scared cause once the queen comes back, rihanna will be an after thought like she was before the queen took a break.

    beyonce fans stand up. i agree with the person who said rihanna’s best doesn’t even equal beyonce’s worst. talk about people saying you have a mediocore album (b’day) yet you managed to sell 7mil, have a top 10 dvd for 9 mons straight,sell out tours in russia, romania, ethiopia, 2 nights at MSG and tons of other places while the person with the supposed best album (GGGB)with the 10billion #1 singles can’t sell 2mil in the u.s. and is still an opening act. rihanna’s 3 albums combined doesn’t equal queen bee’s 1 album let alone the two combined.

    TRUE TALENT fans stand up, rihanna stans sit down. we know ya’ll scared, as you should be. if i was a rihanna fan, i would be running scared to! LMAO

    um, i don’t understand what this has to do with michelle and it’s the internet (fans and haters alike) creating buzz. all musicworld did was put out a statement telling us the date the album is going to come out and what the song titles were. in my opinion, they are waiting until michelle’s album comes out before they even start with bee. come one, releasing singles only a month before an album comes out? who does that anymore when singles are being released 3mons in advanced? anyway, the queen is back and like i said, the internet is the one making the buzz.

    also, michelle posted a blog saying she can’t really promote cause she broke her toe or something. she needs to get out there or forget about the album. broken toe and all

    LoL — alot of these posts are so…comical, to say the very least.

    When will people stop getting personally offended over someone else's opposing view of a particular artist? sigh…

    …since I'm tired of reading miles of ignorant comments, I'll enlighten everyone on my opinion:

    You have to respect Beyonce' for the simple fact of her work ethic – point blank. It's really not fair to compare a 'Rihanna' to a 'Beyonce.' Rihanna may be the superficial hot chick of the moment, but Beyonce has proven that she can hold strong in a group…as well as solo. Beyonce has a substantial amount of creative control over her material, ensuring that she'll make a profit regardless of how good/bad her music sells may be.

    Also, she has branched out into movies and a rather successful [& legit] apparel line all while maintaining her pop-icon-in-music status. I would like to see Rihanna pull off making two movies and an album in a year's time after coming off a self-headlining worldwide tour.

    From my perspective, Rihanna represents everything that is the superficial nature of pop culture. Sure, she's hot right now and appeals to a seemingly wide margin. Yes, she's amassed some catchy singles and 'slave-to-fashion' sense of style that works for the time being. But honestly, unless she becomes more than just a one-trick pony and stop allowing the industry to pimp her…manipulate her…and dilute her down to this lil' lifeless shell, she won't last very long into the next decade.

    I'm looking forward to this new material Beyonce' will be putting out next month. Considering her past, I'm sure it'll be something to captivate all of us — hate and/or hate.

    U must be smoking crack Creative control has nothing to do with her monopolizing her money. Thats called having business smarts which she does have. She can’t even write a 60% of her albums, that is not being creative, Atleast other female artist who shall remain nameless actually write, compose their albums themselves. Who hasn’t branched out into movies these days? She hasn’t even had a huge amount of success with the movies she was in, make that point when she gets an Oscar. And House of Hell no is not a successful clothing line…come on now! Rihanna is smart and young, do not down play her success, look at Madonna’s career in the 80’s she was young and was on the grind, hit after hit, and tried different things. To me rihanna is the modern day black Madonna as far as cross over appeal and hits. Beyonce is a one trick pony with these black anthems that make black folks look and sound superficial and artificial. Hollywood, Suga moma, Get me bodied? upgrade u? to the left?

    I am interested to see wat bee has in store for us. I love both bee and rhi, bee is always on her A game and when Rhi is good Rhi is great(live that is). Both are beautiful and talented so people shut up with the hate and grow up. Besides while both of these women are great A. Keys kills in every category she’s my personal favorite(LOL). I wish they all had Cds out cause that would make for some crazy great awards shows.

    BUT THE HATING HAS TO STOP

  99. Anonymous September 9, 2008

    Right Hating has to stop. And it has nothung to do with Ciara, just similar song titles, thats all… lets all just wait what Beyonces song sounds like.

  100. Anonymous September 9, 2008

    as I’ve said before…

    Please stop comparing to Ciara’s “Like a Boy” single, when no one even heard a note of B’s Song. Can’t understand why people are that crazy to hate. Sure, the title sounds the same in some way, but I’m sure it’ll be complete different… so, who cares, there are hundreds of songs with even the same title.

    THE QUEEN BEYSUS HAS RETURN! IT’S FUNNY HOW PEOPLE LIKE “IT’S LEWIS.B****” CAN SAY THINGS PURELY OUT OF IGNORANCE AND DON’T KNOW FACTS. WHEN “BEAUTIFUL LIAR” WENT TO #1 IN 22 COUNTRIES. ALSO THAT B’DAY SOLD 7 MILLION WORLDWIDE AND HIS PRECIOUS RIHANNA DID 5 MILLION AND BARLEY HIT 1 MILLION IN THE US!!!! WHEN RIHANNA IS CALLED AN “INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR AND ICON” THEN YOU CAN TALK SMACK.

    @ 5:24 LOL thats right ignorant @ss lol I posted 12:57 and ok you named some white owned companies. That only means they pimped her @ss out to get money from silly people like you. I doubt seeing Beywolf on those ads made normal thinking people buy their product. Those folks didn’t care about a black face years ago and now they found a way to make money pimping her out, Yea she getting paid, paid to play the role of a house negro in modern society…ahhhhhh WAKE UP STANS!!!! I doubt they even listen to her music or play her songs at their fashion shows.

    Definitely an EVENT. So excited for this, definitely!

  118. SR September 10, 2008

    TO THE POST REGARDING THE “A” ARTIST. ITS AMERIE. Elements that sound the same are because Rich Harrison Produced on both albums. Amerie’s Touch and B’Day. Im not a hater Love all the artist that everyones bringing up. haha too much hate in the world yo. Yes we all know B has more talent than Rihanna, and some other artist but she is not the best. there is no best, B is great and every artist stands alone. no need to compare.

  119. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    Beyonce is more R&B than Rihanna. Hence why the more pop fans LOVE Rihanna. Don't ge tme wrong Beyonce has pop songs too, but we can all tell that she has more soul in her music. (singing at last @ fashion rocks, movies: Dream Girls,Caddilac Records, Her first album is way more R&B than any of rihanna's. Thats the difference between there music and enough talk about Rihanna, this post is about Beyonce. so theres no need to drag other artst and compare theres enough hate/love on this site for both artist lol.

  120. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    Beyonce did not steal anyone’s style. No one owns a style. Only reason why music sounds the same is because different artist work with the same producers. think of how many artist work with the same people, timbaland, neptunes, etc

  121. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    i agree with the above..but am a bit worried cos i read timbaland produced beyonce’s whole album…so she’s doin wat madonna has done..but that sound is old!! now its all bout that techno stuff…hope beyonce and timbaland start something new!!

  122. Anonymous September 10, 2008

    why is people comparing Rihanna to Madonna AND Beyonce? I think its INSANE.

    FOR RIHANNA STANS INFORMATION BRITNEY SPEARS IS THE NEW MADONNA IN TRAINING NOT RIHORROR.
    MADONNA AND BRITNEY ARE AMAZING PERFORMERS AND ENTERTAINERS RIHORROR ISNT AND WILL NEVER BE!!!

    WHITE PEOPLE DONT GIVE A F*** ABOUT RIHANNA IF SO SHE WONT HAVE SOLD 60 MIL. WITH 4 ALBUMS TO MATCH BRITNEY’S. SHE IS A SINGLE ARTIST.

    THE SAME RIHANNA COULD BARELY WIN A GRAMMY, PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR HER INCLUDING THE LABEL BOSS (LA REID.

    THE VMAS SHOULD GIVE RIHANNA STANS AN IDEA ABOUT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AND THAT WHITE PEOPLE PREFER THEIR VERY OWN ANY DAY!!! THATS WHY THEY LICK BRITNEY ASS 3 TIMES ON SUNDAY(SAYS WHO IS THEIR FAVOURITE)

    ANYWAYS, I CANT WAIT FOR BEY NEW ALBUM. BRING IT ON BEY!!!

    Good for her….not really a fan anymore. I like more R&B music, and Beyonce isn't really R&B…in my opinion. Production wise…sounds good, but her songs never really talking about anything. Now DC….that would get me hyped. Another Kelly album…that would also get me hyped (Ms.Kelly was on point).
    But good luck to her….and hopefully it'll catch my attention.

    she needs to stay off the scene. beyonce is a horrible song writer. The great singles that she has had of some substance are always written by someone else! Can’t solange get any airtime…damn!
